The transition rules are never created, so they are ROM friendly. :)
I'm not quite sure if it is possible to make other entities of FSM
read-only with no structors. There are quite a few static dispatching
maps in the implementation, but they have to be filled sometime, even
though they are constant through the rest of the state machine's
